. mr. president, that's just unacceptable. that's why every day in the united states senate i'll stand with our veterans, as i know you do and all of our colleagues 24/7. that's why one of my top priorities in the senate has been and will continue to be to make sure there are good jobs for our returning veterans. i am particularly pleased that the veterans job corps act includes provisions to provide veterans with access to the internet and computers to assist them in their job searches. this is important because as we all know, the -- today's veterans are tech savvy. i talked about establishing an internet portal for job seekers and i will be working with the secretary to make sure this provision of the act is up and running as quickly as possible. i do, however, suggest that we amend the legislation so that it is abundantly clear that the employment opportunities available through the veterans job corps are maintained on one, only one internet portal. a simple one-stop center for job seekers. in this technology age, we need a central clearinghouse to match veterans with available job

now, or in second grade, or in high school, or maybe even in the united states senate. but it's clear from looking at the united states and the changes in our demography that latinos will continue to play a larger role in national dialogue. if you look at the specifics, in 2004, 7.6 million latinos are said to have voted in the united states. that's according to research that's been done at the national level. in 2008 in a presidential election, that jumped up to 9.7 million. now there are estimates that in this coming election in november, that the number could go all the way up to as high as 12 million. and that number is only going to grow, so i think it makes it all the more relevant to examine the life of somebody like marco rubio. in some respects i kind of think of him a little bit as almost a test case for how the american population relates to a latino politician. that was reason enough for me to write a book about him. because in the same way that you look at the reasons why you want to write a newspaper article, i think you also have to ask that question when you're setting
republican candidate for the united states senate has a problem in his or her race right now. and the problem in all of those senate races for republican candidate is this man. mitt romney. the republican party's current standard bearer. republican senate candidate george allen of virginia in his debate this afternoon was asked about mitt romney and his 47% of the country sees themselves as victims who can't be persuaded to care for their lives comment. here's how george allen handled it. he said, quote, i have my own point of view, and my point of view is people of america don't look at themselves as victims. even before today's debate, george allen had already been trying to distance himself from his own party's presidential ticket saying mitt romney and paul ryan are wrong on the issue of medicare. basically all of the senate republican candidates in closely contested races right now are running against mitt romney. it's not just republican george allen in virginia saying, i don't think americans see themselves as victims. it's also republican dean heller in nevada saying about mitt romney
most bipartisan in the united states senate. i was recently named by "washingtonian" magazine as least partisan senator. the key is to do it together truly in a bipartisan manner. we drew a line in the sand collectively and in a bipartisan way. we need to sit down in a room in a bipartisan manner. the only way we're going to get this done is to actually work together in a truly bipartisan manner and i'm the only one in this room right now who's going to be doing that. being the second most bipartisan senator right now, i've been doing it since i got there. >> there isn't even an -- that "r" next to my name, it stands for the "r" that's in bipartisan. i'm no republican, pay no attention to the "r." i abbreviate things from the middle. every senate republican, every republican candidate for the united states senate has a problem in his or her race right now. and the problem in all of those senate races for republican candidate is this man. mitt romney. the republican party's current standard bearer. republican senate candidate george allen of virginia in his debate this afternoon was ask
out i'm not against the rand paul amendment be voted on by the united states senate. i do object to the -- an hour equally divided. i object to the fact that we do not have either side-by-side or second-degree amendments, which is the normal parliamentary procedure. and since -- since the majority leader had to inject the number-one objective is defeat barack obama routine again, i would like to point out, this is the least productive congress since 1947. that we have for the first time in 51 years, we're not taking up the defense authorization bill. for the first time in 51 years, when we are fighting a war in afghanistan, that we can't find the time -- we can't find the time in the united states senate to take up the bill that's so important to the security of this nation. so the majority leader should be proud of his record, as i mentioned, including the fact that this congress is the least productive since 1947, but most of all, in 50 years -- in 50 years -- we have not taken up the defense authorization bill and we've taken it up for 50 years because other majority leaders w
